I don't always do separate posts for icings, but this one is so special that I just needed to share it with you! Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting - so perfect, so packed with peanut butter flavor, and the perfect consistency to hold frosting ribbons, swirls and twirls! And if the perfect flavor and texture aren't enough, the beautiful caramel color just screams "peanut butter" - YUM!
And it tastes even more creamy and dreamy than it looks! I know you'll love this on cupcakes, brownies and cakes. Perfect for chocolate, vanilla and banana cakes, or fudgy brownies. My little ones (and even the bigger ones) will pinky-wrestle over who gets to lick off the beaters and clean out the bowl!
This recipe has considerably less sugar in it than other recipes that I have used in the past, and doesn't lose any of the flavor. Chock-full of fresh peanut butter taste, without extra sugar or butter...what's not to love?
Can you see how the piped frosting holds their beautiful ruffled edges? The decorating geek in me just loves how easy this buttercream is to work with. It's also "thick" enough to hold sprinkles without collapsing.
And although it took only minutes to pipe this, you could just as easily spread it with an offset spatula instead - it's perfect for swirling and twirling! If you love peanut butter (and who doesn't), you'll have to give this a try.
